Off Season Athletic Performance Begins August 17


Beginning onMonday, August ​17, our assistant strength and conditioning coach, Jake Goslin, will begin our performance program for all LHS athletes who are not currently participating in a fall sport.  What is the Performance program?  For those that are not familiar with it, the mission of the program is to “to develop championship caliber, multi-sport athletes with an emphasis on year-round training.”

Performance sessions will run 3:00 pm to 4:​15pm, Mondays through Thursdays.  It is the goal of the LHS coaching staff (all 22 sports!) that all winter and spring athletes plan to attend these workouts.

​All workouts will be designed and implemented by our head performance coach, Arlen Harris and our off-season coaches.  Coach Goslin will run the performance sessions with the help of our winter and spring coaches.
The Lutheran High School Strength and Conditioning/Performance Program is designed to provide our student-athletes the following:  a program that is committed to developing athletes into champions in their respective sports; to provide every athlete with the very best evidenced-based exercise programs; a program dedicated to improving our athletes strength, speed, agility, power, and flexibility; to develop team bonding, leadership, mental toughness, and discipline through rigorous physical and mental test; and to properly educate our athletes on the importance of rest, injury prevention, and nutrition.

Further, LHS and our individual 22 athletic programs have worked hard creating a unified culture of performance training.  Creating a unified program that has the support of physical education staff, coaches, and athletes is a key to building the best possible performance program. The head performance coach will work closely with the coaching staffs of each sport to develop a program appropriate for the athletes participating in that sport.

To that end, the LHS performance philosophy centers on creating an atmosphere that allows each student-athlete to maximize their potential and achieve the highest level of athletic development possible while learning skills and values that will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle in the future.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact​ the athletic office or our performance coaches:
